I would tell others to look at this community. The rooms are larger than a prior a community. There are windows with lots of light. This is a newer community with no elevators. Overall, this has helped my loved one by seeing the trees and weather out the big windows. The community is near shopping centers.

Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.
